The Association between Premature Coronary Art... [Arch Iran Med. 2014] - PubMed - NCBI - 0 views

  •  
    Low free and Total Testosterone levels found to be associated with premature CAD in men.  Some confounders were present, which they tried to account for--this should leave some healthy questioning of this study results.  That being said, this is not the first time low T has been found to be associated with CAD in men.  This study found a statistical significant association with Free and Total Testosterone levels in young men.  Another point to consider is the Low T a cause or a biomarker and an effect of poor/declining health?  I would so more to the biomarker point.

Testosterone and the Cardiovascular System: A Comprehensive Review of the Clinical Lite... - 0 views

  •  
    Some startling statistics in this 2013 review on Testosterone in men.  Studies reflect an inverse relationship between Testosterone and CAD severity.  That is, the lower the Testosterone levels, the increase in severity of CAD. This same association was also found with CHF.  Low Testosterone is common in those with CAD, CHF, type II diabetes, increased IMT in carotids and aorta, and obesity when compared to "healthy" individuals.  Testosterone therapy in those with CAD found benefits: prolongation of ST segment depression, coronary vasodilation, improved exercise capacity in those with CHF, shift to type I muscle fibers, shorten the QTc interval.  Testosterone therapy has been shown to improve insulin resistance, improve HgbA1c and decrease waist circumference and fat loss in obese individuals.  Otherwise, a good review of the association between a declining Testosterone and cardiovascular disease.

  •  
    low Total Testosterone associated with CAD, particularly aortic.  Obviously, Testosterone, when low, is a marker of poor health in men.  However, low Testosterone can likely play a role in disease development, especially when age is factored in--low Testosterone in younger men likely plays an etiology versus a lesser impact in the elder.

Hypogonadism as a risk factor for cardiovascular mortality in men: a meta-analytic study - 0 views

  •  
    Good article. Discusses the association between low Testosterone and cardiovascular risk in men. The conclude that no direct cause effect relationship has been provided, but a clear association is seen. Numerous studies have shown this association.

Testosterone and cardiovascular disease in men. [Asian J Androl. 2012] - PubMed - NCBI - 0 views

  •  
    This article, abstract only, looks at the cause of low Testosterone.  It is well known that low T increases CAD in men.  But what causes the low T?  Is the "normal" decline in testosterone actually normal or a product of accumulative dysfunction.
